As Victoria’s flagship theatre company and one of the largest in the world, MTC presents theatre with style, passion and excellence for a wide range of audiences.
Steeped in rich history since it first began as the Union Theatre Repertory Company in 1953, MTC continues to be at the forefront of Australian culture and welcomes over 215,000 attendees to more than 600 individual performances annually.
In 2020, MTC celebrates theatre’s power to help us see the world differently.

In July, Broadway favourite and five-time Tony Award winning musical, Fun Home makes its Australian premiere at Arts Centre Melbourne.
